Christos Kaouranis

Hi my name is Christos Kaouranis I am 30 years old and i am from the island of Cyprus, the island of love, the island that Aphrodite was born from the foams of the sea. Cyprus is a great place to visit because of the many civilizations that have been through the island through the centuries.
My passion for photography started few years ago when i went to Greece to get my University Degree and i found some other photographers there and they told me to go with them for a photography shoot out to an abandoned factory. After that i was sure that photography would be part of my life for ever. At the early stages i was with my old 7 mpixel camera and shooting things that i would find interesting. After a while and after saving some money finally i manage to get my 1st dslr camera and i was finally able to use my camera in manual. I though believe that it's not about the equipment but about how the photographer sees the subject that he photographs and express through the photograph certain things. 500px became part of my life also because through it i can drain inspiration from fellow people that have the same passion as me from differed cultures. I finally have the chance to see things that i don't know if i am able to see in my life from other cultures and civilizations and from a creative perspective. I really love macro photography and i really hope some day to get a true macro lens and do what i like the most. That doesn't mean that i don't do other type of photography. I really hope that you enjoy my photography work and keep the constructive and positive comments. This will help me go continue what i do and make me better.
